The future of Mark Schwarzer, now thirty-seven years of age, continues to bemuse us.

One minute we`re happily led to believe that the Australian veteran might be on the verge of signing a new contract at Fulham and the next we`re faced with the distinct possibility that, come, January, Schwarzer will be off.

This morning (Tuesday), both of the nations leading tabloids carry quotes from Mark that would seem to infer that he`d prefer to move away from Craven Cottage come January.

Obviously, a move to Arsenal is still in his thoughts with the Australian remarking,

“A lot can happen between now and January. What will be will be.”

“If there`s a chance in January then we`ll explore it.”

“This is the only time I`ve tried to force an issue. I don`t have time on my side and want to fulfill a dream.”


At this moment in time I don`t know who is madder!

Is it Schwarzer who believes that Wenger still harbours ambitions of taking him to Arsenal or is it Wenger or, possibly, still believes that a thirty-seven year old keeper is the long term answer to his goalkeeping problems?

Anyone like to make a point on this topic?

  • schwarzer doesn’t have to be a long term answer to be a success… he just needs to be better than all other options at arsenal… and let’s be honest, the moments he walks into that locker room he would be. mark could give arsene anywhere from a year and a half to two and a half years to find a long term solution, while enjoying top class keeping… a fine alternative to watching almunia and fabianski mess things up for them…

  • let him sit on the bench put in stockdale let him sit out his contract wave good bye to 3 mil and player power ok it wont happen but some one has to make a stand could it be mark and big mo

  • I thought Wenger had a policy that he didn’t sign players over 30, or give contracts over one year in length to players over 30 or something like that?
